Batman And The Riddler Riches is a 3 rows, 5 reels game in which you play all 243 ways. The theme for the game is the old Batman television show. The symbol animations are only done when you win a large amount, or when you win during the free spins bonus, and then, only the major symbols animate. The minor symbols just swing when you get a winning combination. The game offers 2 different types of free games and a picking bonus. During my session, I only got to see the picking bonus and the multiplier free games. I never got to see the sticky wild free games. The game is a ways game that also offers tumbling reels when you get a winning combination. I personally find the old Batman television show to be super cheesy, and I cannot sit down to watch a single episode to its conclusion, but if you are nostalgic for the old Batman show, perhaps you will find this game aesthetically pleasing.
Personal judgments about the old show aside, this game does have its appeal. You are always eligible to win 1 of 4 progressive jackpots. The wins aren’t very big, but they are frequent, so if you are looking to prolong your time on device, this game seems to deliver. I liked the picking bonus. I like pick bonuses where you pick until you match an award. My reason for liking these bonuses is because I get something to do as the player, as opposed to watching reels spin again, and again. I am not sure how much luck had to do with the number of bonus triggers I saw, but I got 4 triggers, and from each trigger, I got very high awards. Finally, although I spent the vast majority of my session on the negative side of the return, my session ended well positive. The help screens are concise, and complete.
…from time to time you will see a phrase like: “Holy Jackpots, Batman” which just caused me to roll my eyes
I triggered the Riddler Wheel Bonus 4 times. 2 of the 4 times, I won the picker bonus. I won 40 Euros my first time around, and I won 80 Euros the second time around. Considering that I was betting 1 Euro per game, each of these wins is very generous. The other two times I triggered the Riddler Wheel Bonus, I received multiplier free games.
The first time around, I won 33.16 Euros, and the second time around I won 159.04 Euros. Once again, very nice wins. I played 500 games at a Euro each, and I ended up 86.52 Euros ahead for an observed RTP of 117% for my session.

As you can see there are some pretty weighty wins in those bonuses which were nice and gave you the motivation to keep spinning for another bonus just in case.
An interesting stat was that during the playthrough of 500 spins the mystery spins in the base game triggered 10 times which gives roughly a 1 in 50 trigger rate. Again it was just enough to keep the bank roll running.
The features of this game are the 243 ways with tumbling reels for the base game. The game also contains a feature in which you get several cells on the board with mystery symbols. These mystery symbols all turn into the same symbol after the spin, and then the board is evaluated. I find these mystery symbols to be very anticlimactic. You get moving boxes with a question mark before the rest of the board fills up, and after the board fills up, they turn into a regular symbol, which is often not a symbol that creates any wins, although obviously, sometimes it does, but to me, this doesn’t seem any different from having the symbol there from the beginning.
